Cloud Sprawl: Avoiding the Sprawl of Uncontrolled Innovation

Presented by

Aaron Polikaitis

About this talk

Cloud sprawl is one of the top three challenges faced by CIOs, with over 90% of enterprises impacted. The simplicity of spinning up a new SaaS application in the cloud has emboldened LOBs to go solo. Enterprise LOBs, eager to transform their operations, are rushing to implement cloud-based SaaS solutions, often without support from IT. Unfortunately, with each implementation, technical debt accumulates. Although initial pilot costs may be minimal, as applications begin to scale, their financial impact becomes significant. In the face of this complex set of challenges, it falls to IT executives to keep cloud sprawl from casting a dark shadow on the enterprise.
